Commons construction updates
May 20, 2012

This is a reminder that construction crews will be in the Hodges Library starting on Monday, May 21.  They will begin to prepare the area by covering the marble floor and hanging dust barriers. We could see demolition begin as early as Tuesday, May 22 in Room 245.

We are still in the process of clearing Commons South, but it is virtually shut down at this point.  Since the DART machine and copiers have yet to be moved we have not taped off Commons South so that students may still have access to that equipment. But that will occur at some point next week and then it will be entirely closed to the public.  We will be moving the rest of the furniture and Steelcase systems that are integrated with networking and power from Commons South by the end of the week.

Services and individual offices normally in the areas affected by the construction have been relocated.

 Service Locations:

Circulation moved to the Melrose entrance

The Information/Laptop Checkout Desk in Commons North is closed.  Library users may checkout laptops from the main Circulation desk.

The Research Assistance Desk has moved to room 135 on the 1st floor (Reference Room).

The Studio is has relocated to room 211.

OIT Help Desk and Computer Support has moved to Commons North

Equipment locations:

The scan-to-print scanner formerly located just inside Commons South has been relocated to Commons North in the area with the white canvas screens

The adaptive technology workstation with the adjustable height desk is now located in Commons North in the area with the white canvas screens

The Sorensen video phone formerly located in the first group viewing room in 245 has been relocated to the area with the white canvas screens

There is a VCR, monitor, and headphones in the area with the white canvas screens

This coming week, two copiers, one all star and one copycard, will be moved to Commons North beside the OIT Lab Services desk. The DART machine will go into storage.
